The largest solar-powered boat in the world is MS TÛRANOR. She is a phenomenal sun-loving vessel, and she just arrived in Miami, FL, our sunny hometown.
As I gaze at the deck of MS TÛRANOR, covered in solar panels, I wonder how and if the yacht charter industry will embrace solar powered luxury yachts.
The MS TÛRANOR, also know as yacht PLANETSOLAR, is a pioneer for sustainable energy technology on water. She is on an around-the-world tour. She is unlike any current luxury mega yacht charter vessel, This amazing catamaran is a 31-meter multihull. She is topped by a large array of photovoltaic solar panels. Built in 14 months, the biggest solar boat ever built has impressive dimensions and is yet both silent and clean.
Imagine a charter in the sunny Mediterranean, cruising from port to port without burning expensive fuels and oils.
Solar enables you to slide along like a sailboat, for example, versus the constant drone of engines and some nauseating odors of diesel fuel. Being propelled by pollution-free electrical engines is a dream.
In addition, eliminating fossil fuel greatly reduces carbon dioxide CO2 emissions. This is an important step for this industry. Yachting needs to project a greater commitment to protecting our oceans and environment.
The solar catamaran PLANETSOLAR employs the leading-edge technology available on the market. The intention is to demonstrate that by innovative use of existing materials and technology, high-performance solar mobility can be realized today.
In conclusion, we are truly witnessing a new era in sustainable energy technology on the seas.
